Estimated Time per Response: 6–8 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The statutory authority for this information collection is contained in 47 U.S.C. 154, 211, 219 and 220. Total Annual Burden: 140 hours. Annual Cost Burden: No cost. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: In general, there is no need for confidentiality with this collection of information. Needs and Uses: This collection will be submitted as an extension (no change in reporting or recordkeeping requirements) after this 60-day comment period to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in order to obtain the full three-year clearance. The Commission has determined that the authorized resale of international private lines inter-connected to the U.S. public switched network would tend to divert international message telephone service (IMTS) traffic from the settlements process and increase the U.S. net settlements deficit. The information will be used by the Commission in reviewing the impact, if any, that end-user private line interconnections have on the Commission’s international settlements policy. The data will also enhance the ability of both the Commission and interested parties to monitor the unauthorized resale of international private lines that are interconnected to the U.S. public switched network.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Proposed Project

Safety Program in Perinatal Care (SPPC)-II Demonstration Project

    The SPPC-II Demonstration Project has the following goals:
    (1) To implement the integrated Alliance for Innovation on Maternal 
Health (AIM)-SPPC II program in birthing hospitals in Oklahoma and 
Texas in coordination with AIM and the respective state PQC (Perinatal 
Quality Collaborative);
    (2) To assess the implementation of the integrated AIM-SPPC II 
program in these hospitals; and
    (3) To ascertain the short- and medium-term impact of the 
integrated AIM-SPPC II program on hospital (i.e., perinatal unit) 
teamwork and communication, patient safety, and key maternal health 
outcomes.
    This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, Johns 
Hopkins University (JHU) and the AIM program, JHU's subcontractor, 
pursuant to AHRQ's statutory authority to conduct and support research 
on healthcare and on systems for the delivery of such care, including 
activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, 
appropriateness and value of healthcare services and with respect to 
quality measurement and improvement. 42 U.S.C. 299a (a)(1) and (2).
    Due to continued pandemic-related impacts on the SPPC-II study 
population, we propose to update the SPPC-II data collection by (1) 
restructuring and adding questions to the approved qualitative 
interview guides to be used with AIM program Team Leads and now 
frontline health providers in the summer/fall of 2021 to include 
questions to better understand the perceived implementation context; 
and (2) adding focus group discussions in the summer/fall of 2022 to 
assess perceptions of implementation and sustainability of the SPPC-II 
Toolkit at the hospital level The total burden hours resulting from 
these proposed updates to the SPPC-II data collection is 64 hours. The 
total estimated annual burden hours for SPPC-II are 54,693.

Method of Collection

    To achieve the goals of this project the following updates to the 
data collections will be implemented:
    (a) Qualitative, semi-structured interviews with AIM Team Leads and 
frontline staff will be conducted by phone or via zoom in the summer/
fall of 2021 to assess the perceived utility of the training and the 
perceived implementation context (including barriers, facilitators, and 
strategies) in the context of a reduced scope for SPCC-II. In 8 
hospitals, one-hour interviews with AIM Team Leads (1 per hospital) and 
30-minute interviews with frontline staff (4 per hospital) will be 
conducted. An interview guide developed based on the Consolidated 
Framework for Implementation Research framework will be used to conduct 
the interviews, together with a corresponding consent form. The 
interview guide will be supported by the SPPC-II tier level training 
specific handouts.
    (b) Focus group discussions with AIM Team Leads and frontline staff 
will be conducted by phone or via zoom in the summer/fall of 2022 to 
assess perceptions of implementation and sustainability of the SPPC-II 
Toolkit at the hospital level. We will conduct one 1-hour focus groups 
with AIM Team Leads and frontline staff in each of the 8 hospitals. An 
interview guide developed based on the Consolidated Framework for 
Implementation Research framework will be used to conduct the 
interviews, together with a corresponding consent form.

Estimated Annual Respondent Burden

    Exhibit 1 shows only the estimated annualized burden hours for the 
respondents' time to participate in updates to the information 
collection of the SPPC-II Demonstration Project.
    One-hour qualitative interviews will be conducted with a total of 8 
AIM Team Leads and 30-minute qualitative interviews with 32 frontline 
staff in 8 hospitals. We will also conduct 8 one-hour focus group 
discussions with a total of 40 AIM Team Leads and frontline staff in 
the same hospitals.
    The total burden hours resulting from the proposed updates to the 
SPPC-II data collection is 64 hours. The total annual burden hours are 
estimated to be 54,693 hours.
